I've been using FARR for quite some time now, but only in a very basic way (no customization etc). Now i'd like to create an alias but i have no idea how to do it.

The idea would be to have an alias (like "dl") who displays the 9 most recent files in my download folder.

How can i do this ?

Thanks a lot.

first answer:

Here's instructions for making an alias that shows the contents of a directory and let's you narrow the search:
http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=8781.0
(caveat: i may have broken something that causes this technique to stop working in the latest version! when i double checked it now it wasn't working for me -- looking into it). my mistake, it works fine -- i just forgot how to use it  embarassed

second answer:

It's not possible to show only 9 most recent or to specifically say to sort by recency, but these are actually nice ideas about features to add.  i think i will at the least add some special modifiers (or plugin ability) to say to sort the results by date. so good idea  thumbs up

What's the right way/best way to call AHK scripts from FARR, please?

I usually call them directly by the file name...
I have farr searching in my ahk scripts folder, and whenever i want one i just search for the filename.

another approach is to make one alias, let's say "myahk", and drag and drop all your favorite ahk files into it as results. then when you type myahk you will get a list of your favorite ahk files which you can launch.
